Calling All AmPark Birders!
As we plan into For the Birds and Feathered Friends this spring, our friends at the Audubon Society are sharing some truly AMAZING programming that they have upcoming, open to members of our AmPark community. Check out their message and links below:
Audubon's Lecture Series is still underway, with our next lecture taking place in just a few days. On Monday, January 9th, we will be hosting our third lecture in the series, "The Welikia Project - Exploring the Historical Landscape Ecology of NYC's Five Boroughs" with Eric Sanderson.
You may already be familiar with Eric Sanderson and/or his work. He is the author of Mannahatta: A Natural History of New York City, and works as a landscape ecologist for the Wildlife Conservation Society at the Bronx Zoo (whoo Bronx represent!). His talk on Monday will be a fascinating look at his new project, Welikia, which gives us a peak at what the landscape of the rest of NYC's boroughs looked like pre-European colonization.
You can find the rest of our upcoming lectures on the Lectures & Talks page of our website.
